The Three Muses "Art Envelopes"

I love mail art and altering envelopes is one of my favourites. Here is a Halloween themed one for this week's challenge. The main image is from a free collage sheet from Land of Nods studios. The sheet is called altered people, but I altered the little boy a bit further still.

This is so gorgeous Astrid. Do you use an ordinary envelope and just adhere things to it or is it created as a whole and then glued on. Sorry for asking but would love to have a go myself.

What a wonderful Halloween envelope, Astrid! You have such a magic touch, and you used the Nod freebie to absolute perfection.
(In answer to your question, the DaVinci piece I used was harvested from Google, and the edges were feathered to fade it into the background. It WOULD make a great stamp, though!)

LiveArt said...

Hugs and smiles,
Linda

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
